So far as there are people to do things better than us should not prevent us from taking initiatives.
The availability of sources and experts to copy and quote from should not in any way discourage us from thinking on our own to bring up new ideas.
Learn for the strengths and limitations of great achievers and move at your own pace and shine at your own range.
No matter who you are, you have some unique qualities to offer to your generation.
Value your uniqueness and never allow the great accomplishments of other dissuade your little, gradual but purposeful efforts.
